Add Something Sweeter to Your Holiday Baking Recipes – Part 2

The holidays are here and there are still plenty of ways you can use holiday candy for baking! Here are a couple more ways you can use Christmas candy in bulk for your holiday treats:

Christmas Desserts with candy in bulk | BlairCandy.com

Cakes: Another option for adding an extra sweet kick to your holiday desserts is including chopped candies to top off a cake recipe. Any layered cake or batch of cupcakes with candy as decoration will look polished, professional, and holiday party-ready! Chocolate or peanut butter-flavored cakes will pair well with Snickers or Kit Kat chopped candy. Simply sprinkle these chopped candies in the layers of a cake or onto the icing. Presto! You now have a picture-perfect dessert.

Magic Bars: Finally, we saved the best for last. Magic bars are those desserts that hold so many sweet flavors, starting with a layer of chocolate on the bottom or a graham cracker crust, followed by a mix of chocolate chips, marshmallow, coconut, nuts, and other candy toppings. We love to toss in favorites like chocolate covered raisins or Reese’s Pieces!

Reindeer Food: This can be called a variety of names, Reindeer Food, Reindeer Bait, Reindeer Chow, Puppy Chow…regardless, this treat is absolutely delicious. Mix cereal with sugar, chocolate, sprinkles, and assorted candy for a sweet snack. This also makes a great gift when added to a decorative jar.

Add Something Sweeter to Your Holiday Baking Recipes – Part 1

It’s not the holidays without food! And while our to-do lists, shopping lists, and meal preparation lists may be long this time of year, it’s important to not forget or skimp on the favorite part of the meal: dessert. Sometimes a cookie or piece of cake could use a little extra “wow” factor and that’s where we come in! Here are some of our favorite ways to use candy in cooking and baking this holiday season.

M&M’s in Bulk for Holiday Recipes | BlairCandy.com

Brownies: Brownie batter is a great opportunity to mix in some sweet treats, like M&M’s! These candies are colorful, crunchy (and delightfully melty if you bite into your brownie soon after it comes out of the oven!). We recommend purchasing M&M’s in bulk, since who knows how many batches of sweets you may need to make? You can purchase M&M’s in bulk and other candies mentioned here from the unwrapped candy section on our website.

Thumbprint Cookies: Who can forget about thumbprint cookies? These cookies are usually a sugar or peanut-butter dough and have a craved-after candy in the middle. You could go with the traditional Hershey’s Kiss as the topping, or you could switch up the recipe with chocolate covered peanuts or pretzels.

Trail Mix: Trail mix is a quick snack option for holiday shopping, cocktail parties, or other events on your Christmas calendar. Combine salty snacks like peanuts and pretzels with Whopper pieces. These are fun treats for family members of all ages. Plus, it can be an easy addition to any coffee or dining room table as a centerpiece!

We love variety, and while traditional dessert recipes are go-to’s for the holiday season, spice it up this year — mix in some whole or chopped candies to your dessert recipes. Shop now at BlairCandy.com and stay tuned for part 2!

Ice Cream Toppings for Your Sundae Bar

Ice Cream Toppings | BlairCandy.com

With the amount of cookouts and get-togethers this season, an ice cream sundae bar is a great solution. Not only is it fun for your guests, but it lets everyone create the dessert they want at the end of the meal. But what ice cream toppings do you need to have for a successful bar? These are the basics that you definitely should have sitting next to your ice cream:

M&M’s – Everyone wants extra chocolate in their sundae! M&M’s not only give you the chocolate you’re looking for, but also that candy crunch that is so satisfying.

Chopped Nuts – Can you have a sundae without chopped peanuts? Not really. Chopped peanuts are great, but adding chopped almonds can also add more flavor to a sundae.

Liquid Topping – Fudge and marshmallow topping are a must! These are a great finishing touch to any sundae. Fudge, marshmallow, strawberry, and caramel are usually the fan favorites.

Blair Candy has these and plenty of other classic and crazy toppings for your ice cream sundae bar. Everyone will talk about how fun the idea was and how many ice cream toppings they added to their sundae! Shop now to get started, and don’t forget the sprinkles!

Add your Favorite Vegan Candy Bars to these Desserts

Add Vegan Candy Bars to your Favorite Desserts! | BlairCandy.com

Just because you have a vegan diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out on sweet treats. You can add your favorite vegan candy bars to a variety of recipes. Here’s a few that we think would go great with the addition of a candy bar or two:

Blondies: the perfect mix of cookie and brownie. This Vegan Peanut Butter Blondies looks pretty perfect on its own, but a few vegan peanut butter cups would make it even better.

The name of this recipe gives it away, but these Magic Cookie Bars look like they could be even more magical with the addition of a chopped up candy bar.

Nothing cures an off-day like a warm brownie! Try this Vegan Brownie recipe for a great day. Add some mixed in vegan candy bars for an even better one.
